Two seasoned veterans did their best to defeat Twin Team Hill, with none but Persephone to witness this Sisyphean task. Gumbo expected a leisurely solo run down by the river, until YHC rolled in at the stroke of 5:30 with the Q and a handful of cones & flower pots. We ran to the top of Twin Team, dropping markers along the way, and had a quick COP at the summit: SSH, DQ, Russian Soldiers, Freddie Mercury, hand-release merkins Then, the latest installment in hills & soul-crushing futility. Run to each cone/pot, perform the prescribed exercise, then return to the…

For a couple of months now, some of us have been assembling on the short street in front of the Courthouse Church of Christ for a Sunday Funday Liturgy of Singletrack and Gravel.  Non-demonenational (we’ve even had ‘cross bikes), and no-drop, with routes that can be as short as an hour and as long as twice that and change.   It’s real mountain biking, so helmets are required and you’ll want to be prepared.  Bailout points will be available for the time-compressed.  When RVA MORE closes the singletrack for weather-related reasons, this ride very easily becomes Gravel Church.  We roll at…

24 descended upon Mary to see where their legs and wheels would carry them.  After Splinter provided a quick translation of the Belizeian word for “Hello”, we were off.  Runners covered distances ranging from 4 to 8 miles, and every distance in between.  Bikers covered all that is RVA. YHC’s Lab Rat-esque apology goes to the 4 and 5 milers, who got slightly lost – but gained extra distance – thanks to poor instructions from the Q. Announcements: Puppy Pile next Saturday Dirt Church coming to a back blast near you Saab Abides

Speed for Need is invading Hampton Roads … THIS Saturday!  We are going to be running in a 5K to support Surfers Healing and the Autism Society Tidewater Chapter.  The event is going to be at the Virginia Beach Oceanfront (4th Street) starting at 7:30.  If you want to participate, you can register at the event.  If you want to potentially participate in pushing a chariot, you will need to be there early … see below.  One thing to point out, both Saturday AOs, Stinkhill and Ironclad, will be having a beatdown.  If you cannot make it to participate in…

There are twenty difficult things which are hard for human beings: It is hard to practice charity when one is poor. It is hard to study the Way when occupying a position of great authority. It is hard to surrender life at the approach of inevitable death. It is hard to get an opportunity of reading the sutras. It is hard to be born directly into Buddhist surroundings. It is hard to bear lust and desire without yielding to them. It is hard to see something attractive without desiring it. It is hard to bear insult without making an angry…

7 studs showed up for a Wednesday jaunt…we all did some loops around hillcrest.  So as not to offend some of the sensitive tuckahoe folks, I will not review who did what. NMM Honeydo pounded a beer before the run in preparation for training for the CSAUP in Oct…apparantly he is doing the 6 pack version….go Honeydo.  Rumor has it that he will pound 24 beers on Saturday night and call it a training run. Bleeder launched a few second early and held Swirly and BT off for the first mile.  Give the man an objective (or let him make…
